Beat the heat with this good news

If you managed to dodge the frequent, but short-lived thunderstorms this week, well you had a good week.

Scorching temps and afternoon storms have made life in the Miss-Lou a bit like a game of weather dodge ball lately. But a few rainbows have reminded us just how blessed we are.

Let’s review a few good things that happened last week.

Tazman Stampley was awarded his Eagle Scout Saturday night. His Eagle project consisted of building a prayer garden with benches, landscaping and statues of Our Lady of Sorrows, St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Patrick at his church in Ferriday. Stampley has worked hard for years, and we are glad to see his work rewarded.

The City of Vidalia is nearly done with a charming riverside gazebo and park. The city’s work here reminds us that sometimes it’s the simple, relatively inexpensive projects that increase our quality of life the most.

Art student Taylor White, a junior at Cathedral, certainly has a bright future ahead of her in whatever arena she chooses. The teen has already received accolades for her painting talent, but she’s also a star on the soccer field.

Students at Morgantown and McLaurin elementary schools will benefit from new science equipment this year thanks to a grant. We are glad these students will have a chance for hands-on learning previously not available.

As we move deeper into August and hopefully closer to fall temperatures, we know the coming week will be great.
